Here's the latest milestone dates:

Given the size of the patch then it would be great to get it in as early 
as possible. With the review effort then I assume Feature Complete is 
too tight although I know Brian Burkhalter is anxious to get it in as 
soon as possible. I can't comment on the BigInteger.toString work to 
know how big this is.
